The.22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire called.22 WMR.22 Magnum.22 WMRF.22 MRF, or.22 Mag, is a rimfire cartridge. Loaded with a bullet weight of 40 grains delivering velocities in the 2,000 feet per second range from a rifle barrel.22 WMR is now loaded with bullet weights ranging from 50 grains at 1,530 feet per second to 30 grains at 2,200 feet per second. The.22 WMR was introduced in 1959 by Winchester, but was not used by Winchester until the Winchester Model 61 slide rifle could be chambered for it in 1960. The first rifle to be offered in the new chambering was the Marlin Levermatic rifle in 1959, because its design was modified to accept the more powerful cartridge. By the time of the introduction of the Winchester 61, Smith & Wesson and Ruger had revolvers for it, Savage had come out with the Model 24 and since late 2012, the Model 42, a more modern update than the 24, a.22/.410 rifle/shotgun combination gun. It was the only successful rimfire cartridge introduced in the 20th century. The.22 WMR uses a larger case than both in diameter and length.
The.22 WMR case is a lengthened version of the older.22 WRF. In the most common modern loadings, the combination of more powder and higher sustained pressures gives velocities of 1,875 feet per second from a rifle using a 40-grain bullet, 1,500 feet per second from a handgun; because of its larger size, a.22 WMR round will not fit into the chamber of a.22 LR firearm. It is dangerous to chamber.22 LR rounds in a.22 WMR firearm. Doing so can result in injury from high pressure hot gas leaking around the LR case, too small for a.22 WMR chamber. The.22 WMR uses bullets comparable in weight to the.22 Long Rifle, but is faster, it shoots flatter and farther and hits harder at all ranges. The 40-grain.22 WMR at 100 yards still has 50% more kinetic energy than a 40-grain.22 LR at the muzzle. The.22 WMR provides improved penetration and more reliable expansion at longer ranges with expanding bullets. If sighted in for maximum point blank range on a 3-inch high target, the 40-grain.22 WMR has an effective range of nearly 125 yards.
This makes the.22 WMR an effective short to medium range varmint hunting rifle cartridge. The.22 WMR can kill small game such as rabbits, groundhogs, prairie dogs, foxes and coyotes. The quiet report and negligible recoil make it a pleasant target and plinking round to shoot for extended periods, it first appeared in the Marlin Model 57M Levermatic carbine in 1959, followed by the.22 WMR over.410 gauge Savage Model 24 combination gun, followed by Winchester's own Model 61 pump-action rifle and Model 255 lever-action rifle. The Chiappa Double Badger combination gun comes with a.22 WMR over.410 gauge option. The Springfield Armory M6 Scout is made in.22 Magnum over.410 gauge. The Chiappa M6 Survival Gun is similar combination gun that comes with a 12 gauge or 20 gauge shotgun barrel over a.22 Magnum barrel. A number of single-shot and repeating rifles were offered in.22 WMR. The.22 WMR operates at pressures beyond what normal blowback actions handle, but the self-loading Jefferson Model 159 was introduced for the cartridge.
Until the 1990s, most.22 WMR firearms were bolt-action rifles. In 1977-1985 Harrington & Richardson produced the first American-made semi-automatic.22 WMR. In the 1990s semi-automatic.22 WMR rifles were introduced by Ruger and Marlin, are produced by Remington and Tanfoglio Appeal Rifle as well as the Excel Arms Accelerator Rifle and Savage arms A22 magnum. Revolvers in.22 WMR are made by Smith & Wesson, Taurus, North American Arms, Heritage Arms, Sturm Ruger. Semi-automatic pistols for this cartridge are produced by Kel-Tec, Grendel and AMT, the latter two now defunct; the Grendel, AMT and Kel-Tec designs used specially designed chambers with flutes or gas ports, designed to lubricate the long, thin cartridge with gases from the chamber, overcoming the Blish effect and allowing easy extraction of the cartridge. High-Standard produced various models and versions of their classic two-shot over/under derringer in both.22 WMR and.22 LR. The Marlin Model 25MG is a smooth bore, eight-shot, magazine-fed.22 WMR, bolt-action shotgun manufactured by Marlin firearms Company.
It was designed to use snake shot, marketed as a "garden gun" for use in dispatching small garden and farm pests. It has an effective range of about 15 yards. Based on earlier Marlin.22 caliber designs, the garden gun was equipped with a high-visibility front sight but no rear sight. The Argentine EDDA submachine gun uses the.22 WMR round. In 2018 Standard Manufacturing introduced an 8 round.22 WMR revolver at the Las Vegas Shot Show. The revolver was introduced as the Volleyfire; the gun has side-by-side barrels, fires 2 rounds of.22 WMR with every pull of the trigger. In 2019 the gun went into production and was renamed “Thunderstruck”. The.22 WMR is an enlarged, more powerful version of the much earlier.22 WRF. Despite frequent claims to the contrary, it cannot be safely used in any firearm except those chambered for it. Firearms chambered for the.22 WRF are not suitable. The.22 WMR was for a time the most powerful rimfire round available. It has since been eclipsed in velo
